You may notice during the winter months that your lip balm and skin lotion dependencies increase, while the vibrancy in your hair, not to mention your energy level, decreases. What you may not have known is that much of this has to do with the lack of humidity in the air. Colder air has less moisture in it because colder air can't hold vapor in a state of suspension like warm air can without it condensing.

These expert-backed tips can add humidity without increasing your electricity bill or forcing you to spend undue time every day sanitizing multiple devices.
